ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS 

The acreage, production and value statistics in this bulletin are official State and 
USDA estimates prepared by the Florida Crop and Livestock Reporting Service. The 
county and area detail were made possible by the participation of the Department of Food 
and Resource Economics, University of Florida, in the estimating program. The State 
Markets Section of the Florida Department of Agriculture and the County Agents of the 
University of Florida's Extension Service, were also very helpful in supplying area and 
county information. Shipment statistics were provided by the Market News sections of 
the Florida Department of Agriculture and the USDA Agricultural Marketing Service. 

Grower organizations have provided valuable assistance and data throughout the 
season. These groups include the Florida Celery Committee, Florida Tomato Com- 
mittee, Florida Sweet Corn Exchange, South Florida Vegetable Exchange, Zellwood 
Sweet Com Exchange, and North Florida Growers Exchange. Sales agencies and trans- 
portation firms provided the inputs necessary to complete the statistical story. 

Foremost, the growers, shippers and processors volunteered most of the basic 
data used in developing these official statistics. The public spirited cooperation of these 
individuals and groups is appreciated. 

Fieldmen James Spires, Immokalee; J. B. Joiner, Homestead; Wallace Jacobs, 
West Palm Beach; and Larry Amlong of Palmetto collected much of the basic acreage, 
production and price statistics in this bulletin. This report was assembled under the 
direction of Alan Dale Atkinson, Gerald H. Moody and Carl A. Ouzts of the Florida Crop 
and Livestock Reporting Service and E. F. Scarborough, Bureau of Market News.

DEFINITIONS AND EXPLANATIONS 



QUARTERLY GROUPS— During the growing sea- 
son estimates were prepared formost crops on a calendar 
quarter to indicate available supplies for shorter periods 
of time than the entire crop year. The Fall, Winter, 
Spring quarterly estimates are combined into a crop year 
total for all crops. Production sold or utilized is shown 
by months. 

PLANTED ACREAGE is the total acreage which 
has been plantedfor harvest during one designated quarter. 
Acreage lost and replanted to the same crop in time for 
harvest in the same quarter, is counted only once. Acre- 
age harvested and planted again to the same crop is counted 
twice. 

HARVESTED ACREAGE is the acreage partially 
or completely harvested. Acreage lost before or at ma- 
turity through natural or economic causes is not included 
in the acreage for harvest. 

YIELD is the acreage production per acre of mer- 
chantable quality harvested and sold or utilized. 

PRODUCTION is the quantity actually harvested 
and sold or utilized. 

ECONOMIC ABANDONMENT is that portion of the 
crop that reached maturity and was of merchantable qual- 
ity but was not harvested because of labor shortages , low 
prices or other economic factors; or if harvested, was not 
sold or utilized for those reasons. Estimates of acreage 
and production lost because of economic reasons are dif- 
ficult to define and measure, and are not attempted unless 
such losses become significant. 

UNIT VALUE for fresh market sales is the equiv- 
alent price received on an f.o.b. shipping point basis and 
encompasses all grades and sizes marketed or utilized. 
Included are packing charges, selling charges, precooling 
top ice , or other costs which contribute to the value of the 
product at shipping point. The value per unit for quantities 
sold to processors is the average value paid for usuable 



quantities, on a "delivered to plant door" basis. This 
value includes transportation and other normal cor ts in- 
cident to delivery at plant door. 

TOTAL VALUE is the equivalent value of produc- 
tion sold or utilized based on the unit value. Cullage and 
other quantities not sold or utilized becaused of natural or 
economic factors are excluded. 

OTHER COUNTIES include harvested acreage for 
all counties for which either published data would result 
in the disclosure of individual operations or acreage totals 
for specific commodities are of minor importance in the 
State. 

RAIL TRUCK (Piggyback) shipments are included 
in the straight rail shipments shown for each crop, unless 
specified. 

RAIL LOAD FACTORS represent the average num- 
ber of packages per rail car based on tabulations of way- 
bills in prior years showing the contents of each car. 

MIXED CARS (RAIL) —Loadings by stations are 
pro-rated by commodities, using tabulations of waybills 
in prior years. 

TRUCK SHIPMENTS are converted to equivalent 
car lots on the basis or predetermined load factors. A 
minor difference of carlot equivalents in the season total 
obtained by adding the monthly or weekly shipments may 
exist because of rounding. 

PRODUCTION AND PRICE UNIT— The offical 
USDA vegetable crop estimates are published on a weight 
basis. For this bulletin, the official estimates for most 
vegetable crops have been converted to the most common- 
ly used containers. If changes in container weights are 
necessary, all data pertaining to the production of the 
commodity in question is revised to maintain compara- 
bility between years. The table below gives the net weight 
used per container and the number of containers per 
hundredweight.

SUMMARY OF THE 1974-75 VEGETABLE SEASON 



Florida grown vegetables, melons, potatoes and 
strawberries were valued at $486. 2 million for the 1974-75 
season. This was an increase of $83.4 million over the 
previous season. Acreage harvested increased 1 percent 
over the previous year, however, improved yields and 
prices contributed the most to the gain in value. All crops 
showed considerable increases in value, except potatoes, 
which declined. Watermelons, cabbage, lettuce, radishes 
and eggplant registered the greatest percentage gains in 
value from the previous season. Tomatoes which rose 
$26.4 million, showed the greatest dollar increase followed 
by watermelons which increased $13. 3 million. 

Average yields for all major crops increased dur- 
ing the season compared with the previous season. The 
greater use of plastic, improved varieties and cultural 
practices contributed to the higher yields. 



and spotty. The spring-like weather was interrupted 
after mid-month by a cold front that passed through the 
state. Scattered frost occurred as far south as the Ever- 
glades and temperatures dropped below freezing for short 
periods from Ft. Myers northward. Crop damage was 
limited to light leaf burn. By the end of the month tem- 
peratures returned to above normal. Early morning fog 
and heavy dew adversely affected most crops. Spray 
programs were stepped up in order to control disease. 



In February, temperatures during the first 
week were above normal. Rainfall was light. A cold 
front passed through and dropped temperatures into the 
40's in some areas. Unseasonably warm weather pre- 
vailed during the remaining part of the month. Early 
morning fog caused some minor problems, however, 
adequate spray programs prevented disease from spread- 
ing. 



Season average prices of all crops except potatoes 
and cucumbers increased slightly to substantially. Lettuce 
and cabbage registered the greatest price increase per unit. 
The average price received for all potatoes declined $3.08 
per cwt. from the previous year. 

In August, excessive moisture delayed field work, 
but seeding became active in most areas. Temperatures 
were near normal. Weather during September was gen- 
erally favorable for crop growth and field work. Cooler 
temperatures occurred in early October. Mild days and 
cool nights the last half of October were beneficial for fall 
crops. Harvest activities gained momentum during Nov- 
ember. 



Temperatures during December were variable. 
Light frost occurred as far south as Lake Okeechobee at 
mid-month. The last half of the month was favorable in 
most areas, however, locally heavy rains caused con- 
siderable damage to many crops. In the Pompano area, 
heavy damage occurred to beans and to tomatoes planted 
on open ground. Use of plastic mulch helped minimize 
damage to many crops. The unseasonably warm temper- 
atures the last week of December were beneficial to most 
crops, however, leaf crops in the Everglades were 
adversely affected. 

In January, unseasonably warm weather prevailed 
during the first half. Temperatures averaged 5-10 de- 
grees warmer than normal. Rainfall was mostly light 



Temperatures during March were variable. A 
cool front passed through the state early in the month. 
Light frost in central and north central areas caused light 
damage to young, tender plants. Mild temperatures then 
returned to the farming area. Light, scattered showers 
fell in many areas during the month, however, most of the 
south and central areas remained very dry. 

In April, temperatures dropped to the low 30's in 
north Florida. Light frost extended from northern areas 
into central counties. There was some light frostdamage 
to young, tender vegetables. Scattered showers provided 
some relief to dry areas in central and southern areas. 

Light, scattered showers fell over much of the 
state' s vegetable growing areas during early May. Locally 
heavy rains occurred in central areas by mid-May, bring- 
ing relief from dry conditions. By the end of the month 
soils were still dry in southern areas. Hail and heavy 
rains caused some damage to sweet corn in the Zellwood 
area. Machines were unable to recover a 1 1 the blown 
over stalks. 



Most of the state received rainfall during June. 
Harvest of most crops was over by early June. However, 
watermelon harvest continued into July. 

Much of the weather data for this summary was 
supplied through the Federal-State Agricultural Weather 
Service, Ruskin, Florida.

SNAP BEANS 
1974-75 



Florida growers produced 4. 2 million bushels of 
bush and pole beans during the 1974-75 season. Acreage 
harvested during the season totaled 35,300 acres, down 
4 percent from the 36, 900 acres harvested duringthe pre- 
vious season. The average yield for the entire season 
was 120 bushels per acre, up 18 bushels from the 1973-74 
average of 102 bushels. The higher yield more than off- 
set the decline in harvested acres and total production 
was 13 percent above the 3. 8 million bushels produced in 
1973-74. 

The average f. o. b. price of $6. 14 per bushel was 
a record high and 62 cents above the previous high real- 
ized last season. Total value at $26. million was nearly 
20 percent above the previous high of $21. 7 million re- 
ceived in 1972-73 and nearly 26 percent above last year. 
The higher unitpricewas responsible for the record value. 

Bush beans are grown in all areas of Florida with 
the exception of the east central and southwest. The 
southeast continues to be the major producing area. Pole 
beans are produced primarily in Dade County with small 



acreages grown in the Gadsden County area and west cen- 
tral areas. 

Earliest supplies of snap beans beginning with the 
fall season come from west Florida. The north and west 
central areas , the Everglades and southeastern districts 
also provide fall production. The southeast is the sole 
source of supply during the winter. The other areas re- 
sume production in the spring. 

Snapbeans were available for market from October 
through early June. The fall crop peaked in December 
followed by a decline in marketings in January. Increases 
then occurred each month until the spring peak in April. 
Nearly 17 percent of the marketings took place in April 
compared with 20 percent in April the year before. 

The bean crop had generally favorable weather and 
sustained high yields throughout the season. There were 
some periods of dry weather, cold and wind which ham- 
pered the crop. Diseases reduced yield in some fields but 
generally were not a problem. 



CABBAGE 
1974-75 



Cabbage production in Florida totaled nearly 9 
million sacks and crates during the 1974-75 season. The 
gross value was a record $26. 1 million and exceeded the 
previous high of $23. 8 million set during the 1972-73 sea- 
son by 10 percent. The average f. o. b. price was $2. 91 
per sack or crate, up 73 cents from the previous season 
but 18 cents below the 1972-73 season. The increase In 
per unit price combined with record yields was responsi- 
ble for the record value. 



Acreage planted during the season totaled 17,400 
acres, down 11 percent from the year before. Acreage 
harvested was 16,900, down only 5 percent from the pre- 
vious year. The average yield was a record 532 crates 
per acre, exceeding the previous high yield by 79 crates. 
The previous record of 453 crates was produced in the 
1973-74 season. 



Cabbage was available for market from November 
through early June. Sales were the heaviest during the 
January through April period with the peak in March when 
nearly 26 percent of the marketing took place. 



The Hastings area continued to be the major pro- 
ducing area with 52 percent of the state's harvested acres. 
The north central area continued to rank second with 
4,050 acres harvested and over 2 million crates produced. 
High yields were obtained in all areas with the highest 
yield realized in the south. 



Seedbeds were prepared and transplanting was 
underway in late August and September in north Florida. 
Transplanting and direct seedingwas active in mostareas 
of the state by early October. 



First cuttings occurred in late October and light 
harvest was underway in November. Harvest in the 
Hastings area, east coast sandlands and the Sanford area 
was active by late December. Cuttings rose sharply in 
January and continued to increase until the March peak. 
Supplies declined sharply after mid-May with only a few 
sales extending into early June.

CARROTS 
1974-75 



Carrot production in Florida made rapid advances 
during the 1970-71 season and continued to increase through 
the 1972-73 season. Production in 1974-75 held steady at 
this relatively high level. The crop is utilized for both 
fresh market and processing. 

The muck soils around Lake Apopka near Zellwood 



and the Everglades provide a good medium for growth. 
The mini or finger-sized carrots usually begin harvest in 
October and continue through May. Regular-sized carrots 
are harvested from November through June. Most inter- 
state shipments were recorded in the December through 
May period. Peak movement occurred during the Febru- 
ary through April period. 



CELERY 
1974-75 



Florida celery marketings of 6.9 million crates 
were harvested from 10,600 acres. During the 1974-75 
growing season, the average yield of 655 crates per acre 
compared with 641 crates for the previous year. 



glades continued into mid-April, while some acreages in 
the north central district were still being seeded in early 
May. Growers in Sarasota planted from October to late 
March. 



Prices were generally slightly higher than for the 
1973-74 season. Celery averaged $3.73 f. o.b. per crate 
compared with $3.19 in 1973-74. The record high aver- 
ave of $4. 94 was returned for the 1971-72 season. Dur- 
ing the 1974-75 season, prices were generally above a 
year earlier for fall, winter and spring. The crop was 
valued at $25.9 million, an increase of 22 percent from 
the previous season, but was 32 percent below the record 
high value received for the 1971-72 crop. 

The Everglades, with 84 percent of the harvested 
acres, was the foremost area of production throughout the 
season. The north central area, supplemented by light 
volume from the Sarasota area, accounted for the remain- 
ing 16 percent of the acreage and provided continuing 
supplies throughout the season. 

Plant bed preparation and seeding was underway 
in early June. Transplanting began in the Everglades and 
Zellwood in mid- August. Scheduled plantings in the Ever- 



Light harvest began in early November. Growing 
conditions were hot and humid in the early fall. Cool 
nights in mid-November were beneficial. Yields and 
quality improved as the season progressed. Disease 
problems were generally under control. Some light leaf 
miner problem occurred in early spring. The market 
was sluggish during much of the marketing season. Ap- 
proximately 8 percent of the planted acreage was not har- 
vested, which is near normal. Growers passed over 
some acreage in order to maintain good quality. 

Celery production was stable December through 
May. Cutting declined seasonally in late May and June. 
Harvest was completed by July 1. 

Celery is subject to a Federal marketing order 
administered by the Florida Celery Committee. Their 
field supervisors provide acreage and production data. 
In cooperation with the committee, these data are as- 
sembled into weekly and monthly reports. 



CHINESE CABBAGE 
1974-75 



Chinese cabbage is grown primarily at Zellwood 
and in the muckland of the Everglades. Harvest was un- 
derway by November 1. Volume was light through most 
of November but increased rather sharply in December 
and January. Production peaked in April. Good sup- 
plies were available December through early May. Dur- 
ing April, Zellwood was providing increasing amounts 



while production in the Everglades was declining season- 
ally. Much of the production sold during May came from 
the Zellwood area. By late May the season was over. 

Yields and quality were generally good through 
the season. The crop suffered from only minor damage 
from adverse weather and disease.

SWEET CORN 
1974-75 



Florida, the nation's leading sweet corn producer, 
marketed 12. million crates during the 1974-75 season. 
Production increased 1 percent from the previous year. 
Growers harvested 52,700 acres, up 6 percent from the 
49,900 acres harvested during the 1973-74 season and 
about the same level as the 1972-73 harvested acres. 
Weather conditions during the growing season were gener- 
ally favorable in most areas. However, yields averaged 
227 crates per acre statewide compared with 237 crates 
a year earlier. 

The season average f. o. b. price of $3. 77 per 
crate was up 59 cents from the average during the pre- 
vious year and set a new record high. The total value of 
the crop was $45. 1 million, up $7. 4 million from the $37.7 
million received for the 1973-74 crop. The value of sweet 
corn ranked second in the state in vegetable crops and 
was exceeded only by the value of tomatoes. 

First plantings of the season were underway in 
mid-August in the Everglades. Showers interrupted 
plantings but seedings progressed each week. Seeding on 
the east coast was underway by early October and in- 
creased as the month progressed. Planting in the rock- 



land of Dade County began in late September. First har- 
vest began in the Everglades in the week ended September 
23rd and reached a fall peak in November. The declining 
harvest in the Everglades during December was partially 
offset by light harvest from the lower east coast and Dade 
County. The Everglades spring deal was underway by late 
March as "inside" acreage provided light volume. "Out- 
side" acreage moved into production around mid-April. 
The Everglades became the main source of supply in late 
April as the east coast phased out. The transition of har- 
vest from the Everglades to Zellwood occurred in May. 
Zellwood increased to full volume by late May. Lake 
County provided good volume in June. The season was 
over in early July. 

Small acreages furnished supplemental supplies at 
Zellwood and the west central area during the early fall, 
and at Sarasota in the early spring. 

Weather during the season was generally favorable. 
Rains and winds created some problems early in the sea- 
son in south Florida and in June in the Zellwood area. 
Cold damage was very light during the winter months. 



CUCUMBERS 
1974-75 



Florida production of fresh market cucumbers during 
the 1974-75 crop year totaled 4.0 million bushels, up one 
third from the 1973-74 crop. The 15,000 acres planted 
reversed the downward trend that has occurred in recent 
years and gained 6 percent over the 1973-74 acreage. 
Acreage harvested totaled 14,600 compared with 13,000 
harvested during the previous year. Average yield per 
acre was up 45 bushels from the 231 bushel average for 
the previous year. Total production was valued at $18.4 
million compared with $14.6 million the previous year. 
The f. o.b. price for the 1974-75 season averaged $4.57 
per bushel compared with $4. 87 received for the 1973-74 
crop. Average prices received for the spring crop were 
considerably below the average for the 1973-74 spring 
crop. 

Supplies in 1974-75 were generally available from 
October through June with very light marketings in January 



and February. Most of the recorded shipments moving 
out-of-state January through March are for off-shore and 
truck imports resold in mixed loads. 

The production of cucumbers is well distributed 
across the state. The southwest area, with 46 percent of 
the harvested acreage during 1974-75, is the largest area. 
The west central area accounted for 26 percent of the har- 
vested acres in the state. The areas in the west, north, 
north central and southeast provided the remaining crop. 

Weather during the season was generally mild 
through most of the winter and mostly favorable during the 
fall and spring. Heavy rains early in the season caused 
some planting delays and fertilizer leaching. Foliage 
burn from frost and wind was generally light. Blowing 
sand caused some damage to young cukes.

EGGPLANT 
1974-75 



Plantings of 2,200 acres were 19 percent above 
the 1973-74 season. The acreage planted was the highest 
since the 1968-69 season when 2, 200 acres were also 
planted. Yields reached a new high — averaging 692 bush- 
els per acre and exceeding the previous high of 643 bush- 
els for the 1973-74 season. Weather was generally fav- 
orable. Some light wind scarring occurred during the 
winter months. 

Production of eggplant increased to 1.5 million 
bushels, a record high level. Total value rose to a rec- 
ord $5. 5 million as a result of increased production and 
a slight increase in average price per bushel. The av- 
erage price for the season was $3.71 per bushel, com- 
pared with $3. 62 the previous season. 

The distribution of marketings was near normal. 
Harvest began in October, reached a fall peak in Novem- 
ber, and declined seasonally through February. Harvest 



then increased to a peak in April and May. Supplies were 
generally light in October, December, January and Feb- 
ruary. Harvest was virtually completed by early July. 
The southeast area around Pompano continued to dominate 
with 69 percent of harvested acres. The northern and 
central areas combined centributed 25 percent of acre- 
age harvested with the remaining small acreage in the 
southwest. 

Production was continuous through the entire crop 
year in the southeast and southwest, while the crops in 
western, north and central areas were for fall and spring 
harvest only. 

First sales were from cuttings in the western and 
northern growing areas with the first supplies available 
in early October. Harvest then progressed southward 
in the fall, continued through the winter in the southern 
areas, and then moved northward in the spring. 



ESCAROLE-ENDIVE 
1974-75 



The production of escarole and endive (including 
chicory) during the 1974-75 crop year totaled 3.3 mil- 
lion crates. This compares with 3. 1 million crates pro- 
duced the previous season. The 5,700 acres harvested 
was down 5 percent from the previous season. Yield per 
acre averaged a record high 584 crates per acre com- 
pared with 516 for the 1973-74 season. Prices during the 
season averaged $2.61 per crate, compared with $2.27 
received during the previous season. The total value of 
sales at $8.7 million, was 24 percent above the previous 
year. 



The Everglades, which had 74 percent of the har- 
vested acreage in the 1974-75 season, began seeding in 
early September. Weekly planting schedules continued 
through most of March. Light harvest began after mid- 
October and supplies were continuous through May. The 
mucklands around Zellwood, which constituted a large 



portion of the remaining crop, also began harvest after 
mid-October. Only limited acreage was planted in the 
Zellwood area for January through March harvest. Smal- 
ler acreage grown on Lake Placid and Sarasota mucklands 
also furnished supplemental supplies during much of the 
season. 

Sales started slow in October but gained momen- 
tum and reached heavy volume by November. Marketings 
increased to peak levels in January and February. Good 
volume continued through April. Harvest then declined 
and by June 1 was over. 

Growing conditions were generally favorable dur- 
ing most of the season. Warm, damp weather in mid- 
January was of short duration and did not lower quality 
significantly. The winter was not severe and the crop 
came through in mostly good condition.

LETTUCE 
1974-75 



Florida lettuce growers produced a record 1.3 
million hundredweight during the 1974-75 season. This 
production topped the 1973-74 crop by 12 percent. 
A 10 percent gain in yield per acre accounted for most 
of the increase since acreage harvested was up only 1 per- 
cent. Average yield was 181 cwt. per acre, a record high. 
The average for the previous year was 165 cwt. The sea- 
son average f. o. b. price of $8. 95 per cwt. was $2.23 
above the previous season. Prices during the fall and 
winter were well above a year earlier, but spring prices 
averaged near a year earlier. 

Acreage, production and value statistics of lettuce 
in this bulletin combine the various types into a single 
estimate. These types include the predominant Iceberg 
and Romaine as well as Boston, Bibb and Leaf. The Ever- 
glades accounted for 78 percent of the planted acreage in 
the state. The Everglades muckland is the source of a 
continuous supply which begins in late October and ends in 
early June. Zellwood is the other major producing area 
with Sarasota and the Lake Placid mucklands contributing 
light supplies during much of the season. 

Seeding was underway by early September. All 
areas were actively planting by mid-month with the Ever- 



glades and Sarasota areas scheduling plantings through 
March in order to produce a continuous supply of the 
various types from October through May. The central 
area normally discontinues production on the mucklands 
from December until April. However, the warmer sand- 
lands around Zellwood provide light supplies during the 
winter period. 



Harvest was underway by late October with light 
volume through most of November. Supplies of all types 
increased in December with growers cutting in all areas . 
Volume reached peak levels during the February through 
April period. The Everglades provided the bulk of the 
volume by early January but sizeable acreage in the central 
areas contributed to the spring supply. Production dropped 
sharply in May and was virtually over by June 1. 



Weather was generally favorable during most of 
the growing season. Brief periods of cold and windy 
weather caused some minor damage to the young tender 
crop. 



PEPPERS 
1974-75 



During the 1974-75 season, 7. 6 million bushels 
of peppers were marketed from 14,900 acres. 
The average yield of 510 bushels per acre is the highest 
of record. This exceeds the previous high of 473 bushels 
per acre established a year earlier. A greater use of 
plastic mulch contributed to the high yields in recent 
years. 



The crop was valued at $37. 7 million, a new high. 
This was 21 percent above the previous record established 
a year ago. Prices for the season averaged slightly 
higher than a year earlier. The f. o. b. season average 
of $4.96 per bushel compares with $4.90 the previous 
year. Prices were more favorable during the January - 
March period and were less favorable during the spring 
period. Marketings were light in October, reached a high 
level by December and peaked in April. The season was 



virtually over by the end of June. Planted acres increased 
in all areas with the exception of the west central which 
was unchanged. The bulk of peppers are planted in the 
southwest which accounted for 56 percent of the total. 
The southeast accounted for 19 percent of the total and the 
remaining acreage was distributed i n the central and 
north areas. 

Frequent rains disrupted transplanting schedules 
in the southwest and southeast areas. Some dampoff 
occurred causing some spot resetting. Damage was 
heaviest in fields without plastic. The crop improved 
when showers dissipated. The winter was generally not 
severe. The crop came through with only minor frost 
burn. Fruit set and size were good during the season. 
Disease was under control during the year. Spring 
weather conditions were favorable which contributed to 
the record yields.

POTATOES 
1974-75 



The production of potatoes in 1975, including both 
the winter and spring crops, totaled 5. 3 million hundred- 
weight, down 3 percent from 1974. A total of 27, 600 acres 
was planted compared with 31, 300 acres planted the year 
before. The acreage harvested totaled 27, 500 acres , down 
3,400 acres from the previous season. Total sales were 
$24. 8 million, down 42 percent from the $142. 7 million 
realized in 1974. A sharp drop in the average price re- 
ceived per cwt. was largely responsible for the decline in 
the total value. 



The average yield in 1975 was a record 194 cwt. 
per acre. The winter crop averaged 195 cwt. while the 
spring yields were slightly lower. The Hastings area 
averaged 195 cwt. while "other spring" acreage averaged 
185 cwt. per acre. 



The average price of $4. 64 per cwt. was well 
under the record price of $7. 72 received in 1974. 

The winter acreage in south Florida continues to 
be dominated by the "red skinned" LaRouge variety and 
grown primarily for table stock sales. The spring 
potatoes grown in the Hastings area were mostly the white 
skinned Sebago variety used in potato chip trade. 

The winter potato crop was off to a good start but 
harvest slowed due to market conditions in late March and 
growers were harvesting mostly on orders. The crop in 
the Hastings area was off to an early start as weather 
was generally favorable during the growing season. Har- 
vest was active during March, progressed rapidly to the 
May peak and was practically complete by the first week 
in June. This was earlier than normal. 



RADISHES 
1974-75 



Radish statistics for Florida are relatively new. 
This is the second year that data have been published. 
In 1974-75, the 31, 000 acres planted compares with 30, 800 
the previous season. Acres harvested totaled 27, 400 com- 
pared with 26,600 the previous year. Yields averaged 
300 cartons per acre compared with 247 the previous sea- 
son. The crop was valued at $16 . 8 million compared with 
$11.4 million the previous season. The average f. o.b. 
price was $2.04 per carton, up 30 cents from a year 
earlier. 



A good supply of both red and white radishes were 
available from Zellwood and the Everglades from October 
through May. Peak harvest occurred in late March and 
April. The season ended in early June. Seeding of the 
1974-75 crop was underway in the Everglades and north 
central areas in late August and early September. A few 
early loads were pulled in late September. Harvest was 
in full swing by mid-October. Supplemental supplies were 
available from Lake Placid and Sarasota. 



SPINACH FOR PROCESSING 
1974-75 



Spinach statistics are not published separately for 
the 1973-74 and the 1974-75 seasons in Florida in order 
to avoid disclosing individual operations. Data for these 



seasons have been included in "Other Vegetables" in the 
overall summary table . Generally favorable weather pre- 
vailed during most of the growing season. 



8 



SQUASH 
1974-75 



Florida's production of squash during the 1974-75 
season totaled a record 1.8 million bushels , up 21 percent 
from the previous high realized from the 1972-73 crop. 
Harvested acreage totaledll, 200 acres, an increase of 11 
percent from the previous year. The average yield at 160 
bushels per acre was up 15 bushels from last season. The 
higher yield combined with the increase in harvested acres 
contributed to the record production. Also, the trend to- 
ward harvesting a larger percent of planted acres contin- 
ued as growers were able to harvest 95 percent of their 
total plantings. 

The average f. o.b. price, at $6.14 per bushel 
was a new high and was 36 cents above last year's aver- 
age. The increase in price combined with the record 
production was sufficient for a new high in value of sales 
which totaled almost 11 million dollars. Prices for the 
three major marketing months, which account for nearly 
half of the total sales, were above the same months a 
year ago. 

Florida produces acorn, butternut, yellow crook- 
neck, yellow straightneck, white and zucchini squash. 



Dade County with 27 percent of the state's harvested ac- 
res in 1974-75, produces yellow crookneck almost ex- 
clusively. The Pompano area, in addition to being a major 
producing area, is also an important market for squash 
grown in other sections of the state, especially when local 
supplies reach low levels during the winter months. The 
southwest area produces a continuous supply of most types. 
Central, north, and west Florida provide good volume of 
most types during the fall and spring shipping seasons. 

Squash is one of the few crops grown in Florida 
that is shipped every month of the year. Shipments dur- 
ing the summer are usually light and confined mostly to 
local markets. The 1974-75 season got off to an excellent 
start with light supplies moving to local markets by mid- 
September. Marketings continued to increase until the fall 
peak in December. Sales fluctuated until the spring har- 
vest got underway and peaked in April. Weather was gen- 
erally favorable, although there were brief periods of 
cold, strong winds and excessive rain which caused some 
losses. 



STRAWBERRIES 
1974-75 



Florida strawberry growers produced 1.9 million 
flats of berries during the 1974-75 season, up 13 percent 
from the year before. Harvested acreage totaled 1, 200 
acres. This was 100 acres less than was in production 
during the 1973-74 season and continues the downward 
trend of recent years. While acres in production were 
lower, yield increased to a new record of 1, 610 flats per 
acre, more than double the yield during the 1964-65 sea- 
son when Florida produced its largest crop of strawber- 
ries for market. The average f. o.b. return per flat was 
$4.33, or 42 cents more than the average received for 
the previous season. The total value of the crop was a 
record $8.4 million, exceeding the old record of $8.1 
million for the 1972-73 crop. 

Laying of plastic and other field preparation were 
in full swing by mid- October in the Hillsborough and Dade 



County producing areas with transplanting getting underway 
in Dade. Transplanting was underway in all producing 
areas by the end of October and was virtually complete by 
the end of November. 



Light picking was underway by late December in 
Dade County and started in the Hillsborough area in early 
January. Supplies continued to increase until peak months 
of February and March. Most of the commercial harvest 
was completed by early May. Growers then opened the 
fields to the public. Weather was generally favorable dur- 
ing the season. Heavy fruit set and fruit of generally good 
size during the peak harvest season helped produce the 
record yield. Warm weather during February hastened 
maturity at a time when demand was great.

TOMATOES 
1974-75 



The total value of $148. 7 million for the fresh and 
processing tomato market continued for a fourth year to 
surpass the $100 million mark, increasing by 22 percent 
from the amount received in the 1973-74 season. The 
major contributors to the increase were higher average 
yields per acre and a slight increase in value per unit, 
which more than offset a decline in acreage. 

Total production of 28.4 million 30-pound carton 
equivalents was 15 percent more than duringthe previous 
season. The fresh market channel utilized 95 percent of 
production, leaving 5 percent for processing. The trend 
in recent years is toward a declining percentage of the 
total tomato crop going into the processed market. The 
Palmetto-Ruskin area had 36.4 percent of production; 
Dade County had 21. 9 percent; the southwest had 24.9 
percent; the Ft. Pierce-Pompano area had 16. percent 
and the remaining was in the west, north and north cen- 
tral areas. 

The state average yield, at 903 (30-pound) cartons 
per acre was the highest ever recorded. This was 194 
cartons higher than last season. Contributing factors 
which led to the record yield were a higher percentage 
of staked tomato acreage and an increase of plastic 
mulching. The southeast recorded the highest average 
yield per acre at 1,005 cartons. Production r e a c h e d 



the seasonal peak in May which accounted for 18.9 per- 
cent of the total fresh market sales. Fresh sales were 
slow through November but gained momentum rapidly 
in December. January and February sales were higher 
than normal. Sales were below average in May and June 
as rains damaged the crop. Tomatoes were available from 
very late October to mid- June. 

The Palmetto-Ruskin area exceeded Dade County 
acreage for the first time. In the 1974-75 season there 
were 11,020 acres planted in the Palmetto-Ruskin area 
and 8,570 acres planted in Dade County. The southwest 
was third with 6, 670 acres planted. There were 4,990 
acres planted in the Ft. Pierce-Pompano area. A small 
acreage was grown in the north, north central and west 
areas. 

Seeding and transplanting were underway in all 
areas in August. Hot weather prevailed during the early 
fall. Normal fruit set problems and bloom droppage 
occurred during the hot, humid period. Weather was 
generally favorable from mid-September through Novem- 
ber. Only minor cold damage occurred to the crop dur- 
ing the winter months. Spring weather was favorable. 
In late May heavy rains caused considerable damage to 
the Palmetto-Ruskin crop, and contributed to an early 
end of the season. 



WATERMELONS 
1974-75 



Florida watermelon growers produced the largest 
crop of melons since the 1966-67 season. Total production 
was 8.1 million hundredweight, up 21 percent from the 
previous year. Growers average yield was 185 cwt. per 
acre the highest of record. The yield was 5 cwt. above 
the previous recordset during the 1962-63 season and 25 
cwt. above the average yield of a year ago. 



A record f.o.b. price, averaging nearly 4. 4 cents 
per pound, was received. The value of the crop was also 
a record, totaling $35.2 million dollars. This was 47 
percent above the previous high of $23.9 million received 
for the 1972-73 crop. 



The watermelon season began in the Ft. Myers- 
Immokalee area in late March with peak volume from this 
area during April. The season progressed through cen- 
tral Florida during May and reached the peak during June 
when north and west Florida came into production. The 
season lasted well into July. 



Watermelon seeding was underway in the Immokalee 
area in late November and early December. Land pre- 
paration was active in other parts of the southern and 
central areas for late December and January plantings . 
Weather conditions were generally good during the grow- 
ing season except in the Panhandle. There was some 
minor damage to plants from cold in the west central area 
during March. The watermelon areas in the Panhandle 
suffered heavy damage from excessive moisture requiring 
replanting of many fields. The crop in the western areas 
was later than usual because of the adverse growing con- 
ditions. 



The southwest made first cuttings in late March 
and was the major source of supplies during April. Sup- 
plies increased in early Mayas harvest was getting under- 
way in central areas. By the end of May the large pro- 
ducing area of north Florida was harvesting. Volume in- 
creased to the peak level in June when approximately 48 
percent of the production was marketed. Sales continued 
heavy into early July and declined sharply near the end of 
the month as the northern and western areas finished the 
season.

OTHER CROPS 
1974-75 



Cantaloups are grown primarily in the southwest 
and north central areas of Florida. Virtually all of the pro- 
duction sold goes through local markets in bushel con- 
tainers . Most of the crop is harvested and sold in May and 
June. Availability of supplies began with the southwestern 
portion of the State and moved northward as the season 
progresses. 

Cauliflower is available from mid-January into 
early April. Supplies come primarily from the Ruskin 
area with supplementary volume from small acreages in 
the north central area. 

Cuban vegetables have been expanding rapidly in 
Florida in recent years. Commercial production began 
in the early 60's. The crops consist primarily of batatas- 
b on i a to s, calabaz as -pumpkin , malangas-yautias, and 
yucas. These commodities are produced principally in the 
Dade County area with shipments generally continuous 
throughout the year. 

Collard , turnip, and mustard greens are grown 
for both fresh and processing markets. These com- 
modities are grown primarily in the north central and 
Everglades areas. Good supplies are available from 
November through May with the heaviest movement in the 
January-March period. Shipments in other months are 
generally light. Greens for local markets are grown ad- 
jacent to most of the large population centers. 



Okra is grown in many areas of the State during 
the warm seasons of the year. Dade County produces okra 
during most of the year for local use and shipment to other 
markets. Heaviest shipments occur in March through 
June, with April and May being the peak months. Good 
volume is also available in October and November. 

Green onions and leeks are produced in the north 
central area mostly for local markets. A limited quan- 
tity of dry onions_is also available. 

Parsley i s available i n both the curly and plain 
varieties. The bulk of supplies are from the Everglades 
and Zellwood. Limited supplies, primarily for local use, 
are available from the Sarasota and Lake Placid areas. 

Southern peas are grown primarily in the northwest 
and west central areas of Florida, with some acreage grown 
in Dade County and the Everglades. Light supplies are 
available from September through December with the ma- 
jority of supplies coming in the April -June period. A high 
percentage of this crop moves to processors or through 
local markets. 

Watercress is available year-round. The major 
source of supply is Oviedo. Virtually all of the production 
is shipped to northeastern markets.
